The Repeater extends the SmartDiagnostics® wireless network range in a cost-effective manner by acting as a data bridge between the sensor nodes and Base Station.
Rugged Range Expander
The Repeater extends the effective range of a SmartDiagnostics® Base Station. Multiple repeaters can be located throughout a plant to act as a bridge between the Base Station and sensor nodes that are beyond the standard RF transmission range. The Repeater provides a simple, plug-and-play receiver location with minimal configuration or setup necessary, and its ruggedized construction makes it appropriate for all industries.
KCF’s Repeater enables the user to place wireless sensors in remote locations, providing communication to the cloud or local data analysis computer. Repeaters allow a single Base Station to service a very large plant without requiring multiple connections to the customer network. Repeaters can operate unattended and may be managed remotely.
The SmartDiagnostics® Repeater is a ruggedized industrial receiver used to manage and organize the data collected from sensor nodes and forward it to the system’s Base Station over a long-range wireless radio. The Repeater complements the Base Station and augments the standard range of SmartDiagnostics® sensors.
The Repeater relays data to the Base Station via long-range radio and requires no connection to the customer network. All that is required is an AC power source.
